However, that doesn't mean you should discount some of the capital’s most well-known spots. 

Nightlife discovery website DesignMyNight asked Londoners to vote on their favourite places in the city as part of its 2024 Art Of Going Out Awards.

Leighanne Bent, marketing manager at DesignMyNight, said: “The DesignMyNight Awards exist to champion the best of the capital. London's been getting a bit of a bad rap lately so the winner announcement couldn't have come at a better time.

“It's one of the best cities in the world for food, drinks and experiences, and this year's list is showing the proof is in the pudding. This is a fantastic accolade to win as it’s chosen by the people on the ground. ”
